Ms. Chen Lichun in Dire Need of Treatment to Avoid Amputation, Labor Camp Authorities Refuse to Release Her
(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Gong practitioner Ms. Chen Lichun is being held in Heilongjiang Province Women's Forced Labor Camp. After being tortured, she is in danger of losing her legs. Her brother borrowed 40 thousand yuan and tried to bail her out to go to a hospital. Since the guards did not receive the money, they have not allowed Ms. Chen to be released.
Ms. Chen Lichun is 37 years old and a high school graduate. She lives in Chengzihe District, Jixi City, Heilongjiang Province. Before she started to practice Falun Gong, she had a serious case of Buerger's disease. Her leg was purple from her thigh to her toe, and she suffered constantly. She could only sleep two hours a night because of the pain. Her hands and feet were always cold. She needed to move around, otherwise, she felt like her blood vessels were clogged. In order to get relief from the pain, she had to massage almost every part of her body to get the blood flow through it.
At the end of the summer of 2000, Chen Lichun started to practice Falun Gong. Shortly after that, her disease was healed. This made her determined to continue the practice.
In December 2000, she went to Beijing to appeal on behalf of Falun Gong and was arrested. She was released after Jixi City police extorted 3,000 yuan from her.
In 2004, she was illegally arrested by Li Shizhen, a policeman from Chenzihe District, Jixi City. She was released after 100 yuan was extorted from her. In August she was reported to be a Falun Gong practitioner while she was working for Hequ Life Insurance Company. The company fired her.
On October 24, 2005, while visiting fellow practitioner Liu Shulan, Ms. Chen was arrested by officers from the Jiguan District Police Department of Jixi City. They confiscated 800 yuan, a cell phone, her ID card, keys, a copier, and two Falun Gong books. When her brother went to the police station and asked for his sister's release, the police threatened that they would arrest him, too.
While she was detained in the Jiguan District Police Department, Chen Lichun was tied to a steel chair for several days. After about 10 days, she was secretly transferred to Helongjiang Province Women's Forced Labor Camp. Her family was not informed, so she did not get any clothes for a change of clothes.
In the camp, she was forced to perform hard labor and not allowed to study the Falun Gong books or practice the Falun Gong exercises. Her disease started to come back. Her legs became purple and even turned black. Every day she was abused physically and mentally. The camp doctor told her after a physical exam that she was going to lose her legs if her condition did not change. The skin on her hands and legs turned purple or even black whenever she worked for a long time. Her face and legs were so swollen that anyone touching her would leave an imprint on her skin. Once she fainted because of the pain. When her brother visited her, the camp doctor told him that it was possible she would lose her legs. Nevertheless, Chen Lichun was still forced to work in labor camp, making boxes for toothpicks.
In order to gain sister's release, Chen Lichun's brother borrowed 40 thousand yuan and tried to bail her out. However, none of the guards received any of the money except the 3rd group head, Ning Lixin. All the money has gone into his pocket for the past two years, and he has still not allowed her to be bailed out. (Ning Lixin is thin and tall. He wears glasses and has short hair. He often secretly monitors the detainees while they work and orders the guards to punish Falun Gong practitioners.) Now, Chen Lichun's brother does not have any more money. He gave it all up to bail her out. Ms. Chen is still being persecuted in the forced labor camp.
Under the supervision of the Director of the Heilongjiang Province Women's Forced Labor Camp, Chen Lichun was not bailed out, since the majority of the people would not even help her in exchange for money. This fact demonstrates their disrespect for life and reduces Chen Lichun's chances for a cure. If she loses her legs, the management of the forced labor camp will be responsible. She should be released right away without any conditions!
People around the world with a sense of justice, please help save Ms. Chen Lichun and stop the persecution of Falun Gong as soon as possible.
